The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon St. Eden is from an 11-acre vineyard on the foothills north of the Oakville crossroad that has the classic red, rocky soil of this area, essentially in the foothills of the Vaca Mountains that define the eastern edges of Napa Valley. This wine, which shows notes of new saddle leather, Christmas fruitcake and spice, is broad and savory, with a classic full-bodied mouthfeel, stunning purity and sensational flavors of wild forest mixed with blackberry and cassis fruit. This blend can be drunk now, or cellared for at least another two decades. (RP)
Dark red-ruby. Musky aromas of red- and blackcurrant and mocha display a slightly carnal truffley element. Fat, sweet, rich and seamless; wonderfully plush, deep wine with currant, plum and mineral flavors saturating the palate and lingering on the very long, ripely tannic back end. This superb wine is gentle and creamy, but perfectly integrated acidity gives it captivating inner-mouth lift. (ST)
Black berries, forest floor, and mushrooms on the nose. Full bodied, with a licorice and tar character that opens up to notes of christmas cake and spice. The center palate is fascinating. Pull the cork on this.
Smells young and juvenile, a bit raw. Shows briary aromas of wild berries, thyme, cherries and mocha. A chewy wine, tannic and spicy. Hard now, a bit austere, but beautifully structured, with a thick, currant-infused taste. Needs time.
Intense and vibrant, with a tight core of spicy currant, black cherry and wild berry fruit shaded by toasty, creamy oak and ending with a nice focus on the core flavors. (JL)
